Whether you’re ready to sell your home or not, there’s no underestimating the power of alluring curb appeal. However, you’d be surprised at how much more money your curb appeal can generate. When it comes to selling your home, imagine that it’s a product on a shelf at your favorite department store. What makes it stand out? What makes it sellable? Having unique and captivating curb appeal is the answer – but if you’re struggling for ideas, here are five alluring and luxurious curb appeal suggestions that will bring you more money!
This is a big one that can make a huge difference when it comes to curb appeal: what sets your home apart from another during nighttime? Imagine that a future buyer drives by your home at nine o’clock PM. It’ll be dark out at that time, which means your curb appeal will be concealed for the most part. You can easily stand out with landscape lighting instead, which is a beautiful way of adding some extra spark to your home. Try adding solar spotlights across your driveway or in your potted plants – or both!
Pretty in Pergola
Anyone can have a garage, but a garage with pergola is a different story. It’s amazing what a touch of greenery can do to beautify your curb appeal! An ordinary garage can be a force to be reckoned with when there’s a touch or two of pergola. Whether or not you choose to add vines with your pergola is totally up to you.
Add an Unexpected Element
Nothing is as unique and eye-catching as an unexpected element added to your home’s exterior. There are many options to choose from when it comes to an unexpected element, but adding something with a modern twist is an appealing touch for many. This black swinging chair offers a modern spin on relaxation and draws attention from onlookers. It’s a great example of an unexpected element! As always, don’t forget to add accessories where applicable, like the white solid pillow and the striped pillow in the above image that complements the black matte swinging chair.
Add a Pop of Color
Speaking of unexpected elements, nothing draws attention like an attractive pop of color. The brighter, the bolder – and ultimately, the more daring. Your front door and garage door are excellent places to start with when it comes to adding that pop of color that your home needs for nearly instant curb appeal. Here are some gorgeous color ideas to help you get started:
- Contemporary coral
- Summerhouse yellow
- Harbor blue
- Vineyard purple
- Vintage green
Don’t be afraid to get experimental with your color choices! The point here is to draw attention and make others take notice of your home!
Use Modern and Crisp Number Plaques
Make sure that everyone who passes by your home knows what street number it is with a crisp and modern plaque. Not only will it be memorable, but it will be searchable with a distinct number plaque. You can opt to go with a sleek solid background, or you could go with a nice wooden texture. You can even choose to go with a planter near your house number for some beautiful additional greenery.
